FMST Bigs/Littles and Meet Themes

posted Jun 20, 2016, 4:05 AM by Fort Myer Swim Team   [ updated Apr 2, 2017, 7:14 PM by Mark Tramontozzi ]
FMST run a Big Brother/Big Sister program (BIGS) program. The intent of the BIGS program is to foster relationships between the younger team members and older team members through regular interaction. The BIGS have an opportunity to serve as mentors to younger swimmers and assist them throughout the season in various ways – showing them through action what it means to be a dedicated, supportive team mates and assist the coaching staff in providing additional guidance on how meets, events, etc are executed. Please refer to this link for more information about the program.

More information about the program on our web site at: FMST Big Brother/Big Sister Program

The list of all BIGS and LITTLES for 2016 were sent out via the FMST email list. If you did not receive it, please contact me. Those that were at the Picnic on Saturday were introduced. If you have not met your BIGS and are available to be at the pool this Wednesday at 5:45pm we will arrange to introduce you. 

Meet Themes:
Every swim meet as a theme for which the team dresses up. The swimmers are expected (and parents are welcome) to come dressed up for this theme. We will take a group photo before warmups. If you arrive late to the meet, you will miss the picture. No need to spend money - just try to find hilarious and fun costumes around the house that are creative and fit the theme.
